Hart coy on Belhadj future
Portsmouth boss Paul Hart has refused to rule out the possible sale of Nadir Belhadj, who is wanted by Hull. As a player exodus continues to disrupt Pompey's pre-season plans this summer, Hart refused to reject talk of Belhadj also heading for the exit door. The Algerian international is a target for Tigers boss Phil Brown and although Hart was reluctant to confirm the interest, he refused to put an end to the speculation by suggesting more players could be sold. "I have seen what has been said about Belhadj and I don't know anything about that. I said players could be sold. It would be wrong to talk about certain players," Hart told The News. "Nadir is a quality player - but let's see what happens." Meanwhile, Hart must make a decision on the futures of five trialists at the club who are bidding to earn full time contracts. Eugen Bopp, Fabrice Pancrate, Yassin Moutaouakil, Modeste M'Bami and Onismor Bhasera are all hoping to earn a stay at Fratton Park. Thierry Audel, another trialist, has already been released and Hart must now make a decision on each of the remaining hopefuls, and he admits he has not yet made up his mind. "It's a decision for me to make. It's not set in stone, I'll have a think about everything," he claimed.
